The following conversation happened between a guy who goes to the same barber as me & My Great Self very recently:
Guy: Hello Sir! Happy New Year! How are you?
Me: Happy New Year, I'm fine dude, Wassup with you?
Guy: Super Sirji! I am in love
Me: Wow! Awesome, Congrats!! So who is she?
Guy: Her name is Aparna and she's a lawyer
Me: Yay! I'm very happy for you.
Guy: Thanks Sir but there is a problem.
Me: Eh! What is it?
Guy: Just a small matter of detail Sir. I don't know if she also loves me.
Me: Have you two spent time together and stuff?
Guy: No Sir, actually she doesn't know me that well but I know her very well.
Me: Oh! So you have a crush on her and she doesn't know about it yet.
Guy: Exactly Sir!
Me: So how did you meet her?
Guy: I met her online Sir. Actually she was a member of this chat forum on films and that's where I saw her profile pic and fell in love with her straight away!
Me: Ah! So this is an internet romance...
Guy: Hehe! Yes Sir, sort of
Me: As soon as I saw her name and profile pic I googled her name Sir and then I found her twitter account so I started following her and from the past two weeks even she is following me so I am really happy!
Guy: Yes Sir, then I went to linkedin dot com and searched her business profile. That's how I knew she was a lawyer.
Me: Hmmm, How do you know this girl is not married?
Guy: Sir! I know Sir because I went to shaadi.com and other matrimony sites to see if she has filled out a marriage profile and she has not Sir! Also one time she tweeted to another girl that she has a crush on Christian Bale and when the other girl said that her husband might get angry, she said that she's not married so I can say for sure 100% that she is not married Sirji!!!
Me: Well how do you know she doesn't have a boyfriend?
Guy: Sirji last week only, I sent her friend request on facebook and she accepted and in her relationship status it clearly says that she is single so I know that she definitely has no boyfriend.
Me: Errr....let me ask, maybe she likes girls. Have you considered that?
Guy: No chance only Sir! I went to her MySpace profile from 3 years ago and she does not update it now but over there she has described her sexual orientation as 'STRAIGHT'
Me: What else do you know about her?
Guy: The usual Sir, her likes, dislikes, films and music she likes, etc, etc.
Me: Let me guess, you found all this out from her facebook page?
Guy: Only little Sir. Most I actually got from her orkut profile and her Google plus page.
Me: This is an afterthought but let me ask anyway, have you at least met this girl offline?
Guy: No Sir! But I really really love her Sirji!!!
Me: Oh you clearly have definite....feelings I guess for her
Guy: Yes Sirji! I really love her. By the way, did you hear this story Sir about this man from England who uses the internet to sell drugs?
Me: No yaar, I haven't
Guy: Yes Sir, the internet has become a very dangerous place Sir! All sorts of people are online. You simply can't trust anyone these days.
